the stand. he still has not cross examined any of them. nbc's mark potter is outside the courthouse in texas. he joins us. mark, that was one of the other points of outrage for some people is that hasan would be in a position to cross examine some of the very people he's accused of shooting down that day. he's not done so so far. what else are you seeing in court today? >> reporter: well, aside from the argument you were talking about, it will go to an appeals court, it was very dramatic testimony as soldiers and former soldiers took to the stand to describe what happened on november 5th, 2009, when 13 people were killed here, 31 were injured in this rampage shooting at a processing center. soldiers, former soldiers told of seeing others being shot, hearing them scream, watching them die, being shot themselves. it was very, very dramatic. one of them, staff sergeant michael davis, said that he heard a young woman screaming out, my baby, my baby, my baby. and we know that a 21-year-old soldier, francesca velez, private first class from chicago was shot and killed. she was nine weeks pregnant.
, texas, with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, chris. the military trial for major nadal hasan is under way here at ft. hood a mile or so from the medical readiness unit where three years ago he shot and killed 13 soldiers and wounded 32 others. now in previous hearings, major hasan has tried to lead guilty to the charges but because this case involves the death penalty, it has to go through this article 32 court-martial hearing. hasan has elected to represent himself which now presents the bizarre opportunity for major hasan to actually cross-examine some of the people he allegedly shot. one of those is sergeant alonzo lu lunsford who told us he is looking forward to talk to the man who tried to kill him. here is what he had to say. >> i will not show fear in the face of an enemy because the man who shot me, major hasan is the man who going to be cross-examining me and that is a huge challenge. >> reporter: sergeant lundford is the lead witness in this case after opening statements begin this afternoon. opening statements are underway right now. lunsford will testi

in houston, texas, he says there is no doubt that they were used, were these chemical weapons, and there is little doubt who used them. >> for we know that the syrian regime, the only ones who have the weapons have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, have the means of delivering those weapons, have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked by chemical weapons. >> all indications point to a cruise missile attack of some sort, perhaps arias sets, allied arias sets as well. we don't know when or who, that coalition is still forming. we don't know what the end goal is. all we do know is what jay carney said today. we know what it's not. >> we are also very much engaged in an effort to support the opposition in its struggle with the assad regime, as the assad regime continues to try to massacre it's a own people in an effort to maintain power. and it's our firm conviction -- [ inaudible ] but this deliberation and the actions that we are contemplating are not about regime change. >> of course two years ago, president obama called for assad to g

psychiatrist admitted he opened fire at the texas army base in 2009, killing 13 people and wounding 30 others. casey stiegel is live at fort hood, texas. casey, hasan still not cross-examining his witnesss? >> reporter: , no, patti ann, he is isn't. i was in the courtroom. i had a chance to study him. he looked down at the table most of the time. when the judge addresses him he is very respectful, yes, ma'am, no, ma'am. but as these witnesses are giving gut-wrenching testimony, he mostly stairs at the table and doesn't make any kind of eye contact with them. major hasan had a relatively bizarre interruption of court yesterday. it came during some of the most horrific testimony we heard thus far. the sergeant who supervised the medical facility where the shooting happened was on the stand. she was in middle of describing a scene of non-stop gunshots and chaos, when hasan randomly interrupted and objected asked please be reminded she was under oath. clearly she was under oath. she had already sworn in. so everyone kind of moved on. when it comes to the cross-examination of these witnesses not r

about during the annual physical checkup the former president has at his doctor in dallas, texas. what we are told by aides is that during the exam there was a discovery of a blocked artery. what we don't know, were there any symptoms? anything leading up to that? that, we don't know. what we can say about the former president is he has maintained a very rigorous physical activity. he is known for cycling and doing a lot of cardio exercise so that makes this even more surprising in some ways at least from a layperson's point of view. he hasn't had any other complicated medical issues. mostly it's been scrapes from falling off bicycles where he's had treatment in the past and issues with his knees. so what we learned is that he went this morning into a procedure, not open heart surgery, nothing like that. a stent procedure which can be done through an artery where a stent is placed in, the blocked artery to open it up and that resumes the blood flow. what we're told is that he is doing well. he's in high spirits. he will remain in the hospital today but is expected to be relieved tomorr

during a shooting massacre at fort hood in texas. major nidal hasan has never denied his responsibility for that rampage, which happened in 2009. and in court today, he said the evidence will clearly show that he is, indeed, the fort hood shooter. he apologized. not for killing his fellow service members. but for mistakes he has made as an imperfect muslim, quote: trying to establish the perfect religion. nidal hasan had originally tried to argue he shot u.s. soldiers to protect taliban fighters in afghanistan. the judge didn't allow that defense strategy. at this time it's unclear what hasan's backup plan is since he is acting at his own attorney, he will likely end up cross-examining some of the shooting survivors and maybe even himself. although he did not cross-examine the retired staff sergeant alonzo lunsford who testified today. this photo from june shows sergeant lunsford holding a bullet the doctors dug from his body it. it when it comes to nidal hasan what he did to me was bad. the biggest mistake that he made was i survived. casey stegall with the news. he is at fort hood fo
